Stopping by this lovely Friday to share some of the things making me smile this week. 
Be sure to share in the comments what has brightened your week too! xx 

1 // Long weekend ahead 
I'm so excited for the long Labor Day weekend! Not only are Marin and I headed down to visit my parents, but she will get to meet her Great Grandma (my dad's mom) for the first time! I am also super grateful for the extra day I will get to spend with her since we don't have work on Monday. Any extra time spent with my baby is a blessing! 

2 // Exercise
I was finally able to get back to regular workouts this week! I've been desperately missing exercise since having the baby, but my new life just doesn't lend any free time to get to the gym...so Aaron and I ended up purchasing a Bowflex Max Trainer for our house. It is super challenging, but I can already tell it is going to be effective in helping me get back to my pre-baby body goals. I am already feeling better after just a few days of using it! 

3 // Fall
The cooler temps and breezy weather is starting to make an appearance here in Columbus, and I couldn't be more excited. I'm one of the few people that really hate summer (sweating the second you walk out the door? No thanks.) and fall is my favorite time of year, so I love the weather we've been having recently! Bring on all the cozy sweaters and football games! 

4 // It Ends With Us
I have finally gotten back to reading on a regular basis. I had the goal of reading one book a month this year, but I definitely pooped out with that goal March through July. Not like I had anything else occupying my time or anything ;) But I started back up again this month and want to resume the goal through the end of the year. I've flown through this Colleen Hoover novel and will share a full review soon! 

5 // Baby clothes
Marin is growing like a weed and is already wearing some 6 month size clothing...even though she is only 3 months old. So, I placed an Old Navy and Baby Gap order this week to pick her up some new things for fall. Everything is adorable, but I am particularly excited about this jacket. I just love baby clothes that look like something I would wear if it came in my size! xx    


  1. I absolutely loved It Ends With Us - one of my favorite reads last year!! I hope you have a great long weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I want one of the Bowflex trainers so badly! That is some great after-baby motivation!
